04 August 2016 16:50
NI Water can assure customers the water quality in the Derry/Londonderrry area continues to be safe to drink and of the highest quality. Following the recent pollution incident in the River Faughan, NI Water took immediate action to protect the water supply in the area which included shutting down the Carmoney Water Treatment Works (WTW) at Eglinton.
Results from continuous monitoring and sampling show the raw water in the river is once again within normal range and the Carmoney Treatment Works has been restarted. NI Water will continue to monitor water quality around the works and continue to liaise with NIEA in relation to their water quality monitoring in the River Faughan.
